An 81-year-old woman says a #61 driver kicked her off his Verdun bus 500 metres away from her destination making her walk when it wasn't necessary. 

The woman's name is Edith Seymour. Seymour was on her way to a dentist at Desmarchais and Wellington on bus #32013 between 3 and 3:30 last Thursday afternoon when the incident took place.

"I didn't see any construction but as we get past 4th Avenue, he turns," she said.

Seymour says she asked the bus driver where she should go, but he couldn't tell her. When he got to LaSalle and Desmarchais, he yelled at her to "get off the bus" despite her reluctance to do so.

"As I got out, my leg gave out and I almost fell," she said.

Still, Seymour was able to walk north to Wellington. When she arrived, she got a surprise.

"I got to the corner to go into the dentist and wasn't his bus right there," she said. "He was driving too. He could have dropped me right there!"

Seymour called the STM to make a complaint but she kept getting transferred to a line no one answered.
